    I have been working at Jet full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    intellectually competitive culture yet minimum or non existent office politics, friendly and extremely smart coworkers, perks, best office space on the East coast, pay, tech events,location, well defined career path etc. I have been around for a while and worked for some very famous brands but this is by far my best job .

    Cons

    The firm should continue to strive to recruit world class talent .

    I worked at Jet full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Compensation, benefits, gym membership, happy hours, free bagels/breakfast on Fridays

    Cons

    Don't believe all the shiny reviews on here. While the pay and compensation package is competitive, nothing will make up for the sinking culture and lack of values at Jet. The culture has severely changed, and "Trust, Transparency and Fairness" barely exist anymore. Hard workers are not rewarded, which has led to turnover; all the best employees have seen the shift/decline and have since left or are planning to leave......

    Advice to Management

    - Refine your hiring process - Fairly reward your best workers - Take a look into cultural problems before it's too late - Weed out the people who are problematic

    I worked at Jet full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Experience in the retail industry, learning opportunities, free bagels on Fridays, office amenities and snacks

    Cons

    Don't believe all the shiny reviews on here. Yes, when I joined the company years ago, I believed in the mission and values of this company and was starstruck at the office, promise of unlimited vacation, casual dress, etc. In a short time, everything has changed and spiraled. The people are now overly competitive in an unhealthy way and will undermine you to get ahead, perhaps due to sloppy quick hiring and the fact...

    Advice to Management

    Your people define where the company is headed. Invest in them, weed out the toxic workers, go back to your original values and actually go by them

    Pros

    Great benefits and pay, friendly staff, great peak season rewards and incentives

    Cons

    They do not stand up for their employees during their time of need, even after working through 4 hours of a severe kidney infection, nauseated, running back and forth between the bathroom and my cart, just to make sure I was still doing my job. Couldn't even function enough to get halfway home and it took my grandmother 4 hours just to find me... That's how much I over worked myself while being VERY ILL, but sticking...
